Compresseurs à air et systèmes

Do higher pressure improves air tool performance?

Will increasing the pressure of its compressed air system to increase its performance really compensate for the lack of performance of the tool in question?

It is a false belief and bad practice. 

If a tool is operating below par, there is simply not enough airflow. Since the tool needs a higher air volume than the system can supply, it runs out of compressed air during operation—and this, in turn, causes excessive pressure loss. Although the increase of pressure of the compressor does provide a short-lived peak force, it also damages the air tools and the system’s airflow is unable to replace the air consumed. Instead of offsetting a tool’s poor performance, overpressure will cause other problems (high kW consumption of the compressor, damage to the tool, etc.). The solution is to increase the system’s airflow capacity. Thus, the tool will not lack air during its use and will be able to perform properly.

Troubleshooting overpressure
Almost all workstations require a level of air pressure lower than the system. To prevent overpressure you need to gradually reduce the air force in the system.

Only specific applications require a higher air pressure level. Use a booster if you need to increase the system’s air pressure by more than 10 PSI for a single user or for occasional users.

Only certain types of applications require a lower air pressure, so install a pressure regulator at every station with a specific air pressure requirement will be a more suitable solution.
